Can you believe that summer is almost over? It really flew right past us as we traveled to New Mexico, emceed State Days, attended Ag Progress Days, exhibited at our county fairs, and begin contacting out Leadership Conference donors!
Speaking of events, August 18-20 was the Ag Progress Days event held ten minutes away from State College. At this event, we led a seedling necklace activity at the 4-H building. Youth plant a navy bean seed in a wet cotton ball and store it in a plastic baggie that is then tied around their neck. When I attended the event on Wednesday with Jess, I met with the Secretary of Agriculture Dennis Wolff. We also met the State FFA Officer Team.
Also this month was a conference call where topics such as State Days, Ag Progress Days, SLC, and National 4-H week were discussed.
I also put the State Days Video on YouTube! Check it out at:
Our next event is the Penn State Tailgate Party on Sept. 12 from 10-1.
Until next time,
State Council VP of Conference
